Welcome to the first post of Lawn Fawn's March Inspiration Week! Today the team is featuring the new spring set "Critters Ever After."
I just love this latest addition to the "critters" collection. You might remember this card I made earlier with the adorable unicorn from the set.
Today I decided to change gears a bit and create a masculine card using the griffin from the set. My boys are 6 & 10 and are getting to the age where cutesy handmade cards just won't cut it anymore.
I added a lot of grunge & boyish details... and this card was given "two thumbs up" from the Campbell kids. Score!
Heidi Swapp just released a totally big-boy friendly collection called No Limits. I used her patterned paper & banner pack as the base of my design.
To really grunge things up, I gave the paper a mist or two of Studio Calico's Classic Calico mist, topping it with just a hint of Shine mist to give it a slight silver sheen. I added droplets of Custard mist over the top of that & then started stamping.
Lawn Fawn's Chevron Backdrops set is the perfect set for adding bits of trendy details to a project. I stamped it once in navy & then stamped it again just below without reinking to create an offset, imperfect impression... which is a really fun look for a grungy boy card.
